Firefox popup blocking

Wouldn’t it make more sense for firefox to allow popups based on the destination site rather than on the source?

For example most popups I click on are for YouTube. Now some on these are on random blogging sites. Which means that to jump to the YouTube page for that video I have to allow popups for some random blog, which can now popup as many ads as it wants.

Wouldn’t it make more sense to allow YouTube as a popup destination. It really comes down to the fact that I trust YouTube more than some random blog embedding YouTube videos.

I haven’t thought about this very much so maybe there is a good reason why you wouldn’t want this. If a few other people agree with me I’ll go file a bug. Hmm I wonder if you could write an extension to do it.

Update: Peter raises a good point as to why this is a bad idea.
